How do I make money and where do I spend it?

As you explore the vast universe of Star Citizen, earning credits will be an essential part of your journey. Luckily, there are many ways to earn money in the game. One of the easiest ways to do this is by running missions. Open your mobiGlas (F1), navigate to your mission manager, and accept any available mission in one of many categories, from parcel delivery to bounty hunting. For more detailed information on missions and contracts, check out our Missions and Contracts guide.

Completing missions and contracts will earn you credits, which can be used to purchase a wide variety of items from shops found at most space stations and landing zones. These shops offer everything from weapons and armor to clothing, ship parts, components, and even ships and vehicles. Keep in mind that not all items are available in every location, so it's worth shopping around to find the best deals.

Aside from completing missions, there are other ways to earn credits in Star Citizen. You can mine ore, trade commodities, or even engage in piracy (at your own risk!). Regardless of how you choose to earn credits, spending them wisely is equally important. So, take your time to explore different shops and find the best deals on items that will help you in your journey. With a little bit of patience and strategy, you'll soon amass a fortune and become a force to be reckoned with in the 'verse.
